This is the entry-level riesling from Maximin Grünhaus. A new project spearheaded by Maximin von Schubert that started in 2015.
The grapes are sourced locally (Mosel) at a trusted producer, then vinified and bottled at Maximin Grünhaus.
The goal was to make a refreshing, easy-drinking off-dry riesling and the result is very pleasant.

Green-grassy, this is brisk and fresh, with zesty lime ﬂavors riding on savory mineral tones—and it’s well priced for everyday drinking.

The 2016 Riesling Maximin (AP #1) assembles grapes from Maximin Grünhaus, the Ruwer and the Mosel. This is a lush, piquant and crystalline Riesling that is uncomplicated but pleasurable to drink. The acidity is remarkably racy, but the fruit is so lush and aromatic that the acidity gives nothing but vitality and structure.
